Course Description:

Regular exercise is essential for all populations, and has been shown to positively impact several dimensions of health. Keeping the proper precautions in mind, pregnant women are no exception. Maintaining a healthy weight can help decrease complications, and appropriate strength training and cardiovascular conditioning can optimize pregnancy, delivery and postpartum recovery. 

This course will discuss the impact of pregnancy on core musculature, hormone-driven changes to connective tissue, appropriate training goals and regressions by trimester, as well as contraindicated movement patterns and positions. A brief review of pregnancy-related conditions and appropriate chain of referrals for complex clients will be addressed.

Main Takeaways:

  • Anatomy and stages of pregnancy review
  • Contraindications for exercise during and post pregnancy
  • Appr opriate goals to consider for the established pregnant client
